The Tampa Bay Buccaneers added speed, leadership and playmaking ability to their defense with the selection of LSU inside linebacker Devin White with the fifth overall pick. Now Tampa Bay has to address other needs on Day 2. The Bucs have the 39th overall pick to start things off, and general manager Jason Licht needs to produce a better pick in the second round, which has been his Achilles heel in Tampa Bay.

Here is a look at the positions of need and the players that are available as the second day of the draft begins with the start of Round 2 at 7:00 p.m. ET on Friday, April 26.

Cornerbacks

The Bucs could use another play-making cornerback, preferably one with the position flexibility to play outside and in the slot. Defensive coordinator Todd Bowles wants big, fast, physical cornerbacks, and Licht needs to draft a ball-hawking playmaker.

Washington CB Byron Murphy
The Bucs love Murphy’s ability to play man coverage and make plays on the ball. They just wish he were a tick faster and a bit bigger in size. Murphy has first-round ability, but second-round measurables.

LSU CB Greedy Williams
Williams loves to cover, but is suspect against the run, as he’s not a great tackler. Williams has great size and 4.38 speed, but isn’t the most fluid athlete, which is why he slid into Day 2.

Temple CB Rock Ya-Sin
Ya-Sin had a great Senior Bowl where his draft stock took off. Ya-Sin has a good combination of size (6-0, 192) and speed (4.51) and didn’t allow a pass of 20 yards or more at Temple last year.

Central Michigan CB Sean Bunting
The Bucs want to improve the speed of their defense and Bunting ran a 4.42 at the NFL Scouting Combine and has good size at 6-foot, 190. The Bucs were at his pro day and had him in for a Top 30 visit.

Notre Dame CB Julian Love

Love is quick, physical and really has a nose for the ball. He’s ultra-competitive and forces a ton of pass breakups to go along with the occasional interception.

Penn State CB Amani Oruwariye

The Tampa native has good size and instincts to make up for his lack of speed. He’s an ideal No. 2 cornerback, but may not be talented enough to be anything more.

Auburn CB Jamel Dean
The Bucs had Dean in for a pre-draft visit and drafted his former teammate Carlton Davis in the second round last year. Dean is big, physical and fast, running a 4.30, which was one of the fastest times for a cornerback at the NFL Scouting Combine. Dean is a Bucs’ Best Bet (Rounds 1-3).

Clemson CB Trayvon Mullen
Mullen would bring championship experience, physicality and some good instincts to the cornerback position in Tampa Bay.

Safeties

Tampa Bay could use another play-making safety as Justin Evans is still recovering from a turf toe and there are a lot of young, unproven players at the safety position.

Delaware FS Nasir Adderley
Adderley was coached by Bucs safeties coach Nick Rapone at Delaware last year, and this play-making ballhawk could play free safety or cornerback in Tampa Bay.

Florida SS Chauncey Gardner–Johnson

Gardner-Johnson played both single high safety and in the box at Florida and is a lights-out hitter and skilled playmaker in the secondary.

Virginia FS Juan Thornhill
Thornhill had a very good senior bowl to cap off a great college career in which he had 13 interceptions, including six last year. He’s one of the fastest safeties, running a 4.42 at the Combine.

Washington SS Taylor Rapp
The Bucs loved Rapp’s film, production and instincts, but his 4.77 time in the 40-yard dash will cause his stock to tumble. For a team that wants to add speed, Rapp may be too slow for Tampa Bay.

Right Tackles

Demar Dotson will turn 34 this year and is in the final year of his contract. It’s time for the Bucs to draft an heir apparent as Caleb Benenoch might not be good enough to start.

Kansas State RT Dalton Risner
The Bucs had a private workout for Risner and love his strength, leadership qualities and his ability to play either right tackle or right guard at the next level. Risner is a Bucs’ Best Bet (Rounds 1-3).

Gators RT Jawaan Taylor

Florida RT Jawaan Taylor
Taylor had a bad medical report on his knee, which kept him out of the first round. The Bucs love his tape, but is he off their board? How far will Taylor fall?

Oklahoma RT Cody Ford

There’s a pretty good chance Ford goes before No. 39, but the Bucs brought him for a pre-draft visit and have the need for an eventual replacement for right tackle Demar Dotson.

Northern Illinois RT Max Scharping
Scharping is one of the better pass protectors in this draft, and has experience playing left and right tackle. He had a solid showing at he Senior Bowl and a formal interview with the Bucs at the NFL Scouting Combine.

Elon RT Oli Udoh
Udoh is a big, raw right tackle from a small school that is probably a year away from contending for a starting spot. He’s likely a Day 3 pick, but Tytus Howard going in the first round shows anything is possible, and Udoh could wind up being drafted in the second round.

Defensive Ends

The Bucs are thin at the five-technique defensive end position where Will Gholston is the current starter. The problem is that Gholston is a one-dimensional run-stuffer and Tampa Bay wants a defensive end that can also rush the passer.

Boston College DE Zach Allen

Boston College DE Zach Allen
Tampa Bay loves Allen’s size, strength, quickness and hustle. He’s a better pass rusher than Will Gholston and would replace him at the five-tech defensive end position. Allen is a PewterReport.com Bucs’ Best Bet at DE (Rounds 1-3).

Ohio State DE Dre’mont Jones
Jones is a versatile defensive lineman that could play the five-tech defensive end spot, but also has value to kick inside in nickel defense and rush the passer from the three-tech spot.

Edge Rushers

Tampa Bay passed on Kentucky outside linebacker Josh Allen and opted for White in the first round. There are still plenty of good pass rushers left and one could be had in Day 2.

Florida OLB Jachai Polite

Polite bombed some interviews at the Combine, in addition to the drills in Indy and at his pro day, but he can get to the QB with skill – and he visited One Buc Place.

Louisiana Tech DE Jaylon Ferguson

Louisiana Tech OLB Jaylon Ferguson

Ferguson had an NCAA-record 45 sacks in college and visited the Bucs. He’s a bit stiff, but has nice speed-to-power and could be a star edge rusher in the NFL. Ferguson was the second-round pick in PewterReport.com’s FINAL 2019 Bucs’ 7-Round Mock Draft.

Michigan OLB Chase Winovich
Edge rushers will be in demand in the first 50 picks, and Winovich was more productive than Rashan Gary, a player that got drafted ahead of him, at Michigan.

Wide Receivers

The Bucs spent a lot of time researching wide receivers leading up to the draft and there’s a good chance they draft one considering they traded away DeSean Jackson and lost Adam Humphries in free agency. Tampa Bay will either be looking for a speed receiver or a big receiver – preferably both.

Ole Miss WR D.K. Metcalf
Metcalf generated a ton of buzz at the NFL Scouting Combine after blazing a 4.33 at 6-foot-3, 228 pounds. What kept him out of the first round is unreliable hands and a neck injury last year.

Ohio State WR Parris Campbell
Campbell is a fringe first-round talent that the Bucs like an awful lot. He’s incredibly fast (4.31) and polished, and is a big play waiting to happen.

South Carolina WR Deebo Samuel
It’s a little too early for Ohio State’s Terry McLaurin, who is also on Tampa Bay’s radar, but Samuel is a Chris Godwin clone with a running back build and 4.48 speed.

Ohio State WR Terry McLaurin
McLaurin played opposite Campbell at Ohio State and is nearly as fast (4.35). He’s a Bucs’ Best Bet (Rounds 1-3) and would look good in red and pewter in the third round.

Baylor WR Jalen Hurd

Baylor WR Jalen Hurd
Hurd is a Bucs Best Bet (Rounds 4-7), but he could be drafted in the third round due to his size (6-5, 220) and his ability to play running back and wide receiver.

UMass WR Andy Isabella
The Bucs have shown a good deal of interest in Isabella, who is one of the fastest receivers in this draft (4.31). His lack of size (5-9, 188) will likely push him into the third round.

Running Backs

The Bucs coaching staff is very high on the current stable of running backs, which includes Peyton Barber, who was only signed to a one-year deal, and Ronald Jones II, who is coming off a disastrous rookie season after being a second-round pick. The Bucs could use a fast running back that can catch the ball in the middle rounds.

Memphis RB Darrell Henderson
It’s doubtful that the Bucs would draft another second-round running back after taking RoJo, but Henderson can run and catch – and absolutely fly. He’s special and would be a great pick-up in the third round.

Penn State RB Miles Sanders

Penn State RB Miles Sanders
Sanders is bigger than Henderson, but isn’t as fast or explosive. Still, he has less mileage on his tires after being Saquon Barkley’s understudy for three years and is on the rise.

Alabama RB Damien Harris
Harris has a good – but not great – combination of size and speed (4.57). He’s a solid running back, but is he special? Harris is likely a third-round pick.

  1. My first observation is “how the hell is RG not on this list?” but then maybe SR is considering the fact that the RT candidates can double as RGs.

    In my opinion, we need to go with the best OL prospect in the 2nd round. With so many pass rushers available, we should be able to find one in the 3rd or later. Our secondary could use the help as well but I believe the front improves the back more than the opposite. Also I can’t see us going WR or RB anywhere before the 5th. We look good at WR and I’m of the school of thought that our lack of running game is more on the OL than the RBs.

  3. I understand both sides of the 5th overall selection when it comes to positive and negative reactions. I am positive because i think White will be a cornerstone of the franchise and thats the least you should expect with a top 5 pick.

    One problem i do have with the selection is you neglected a major problem we have in pass rush ability and because of it we are going to need a stronger secondary due to lack of pass rush not helping our overall weak cast of defensive backs. I think if you select Allen you no doubt go offensive line in round 2. Since we didn’t do that we now worry about the secondary getting thrashed without a bonafide pass rush attack. Thankfully theres some studs at defensive back. Sadly we have to neglect the offensive line again and leave behind studs in the trenches.

    I am really hoping we draft the likes of Cody Ford or Jawaan Taylor if they are there when we select in round 2. Unfortunately though i think we will be forced to take a defensive back and have our fingers crossed that once again we hope for a 3rd round offensive lineman to be a gem.

  4. Edge rusher or Tackle or CB? White filled their need. They wanted a Hardy Nickerson defense captain. Allen might have been the smarter move, but their decision was based on non-athletic issues. How times last year did the Tampa defense looked lost with mistakes? Was Mitch Trubrisky really that good against the Buccaneers last year ? Not! Too many blown coverages. Much is Dirk’s fault, but that excuse is covering up for lack of player leadership. Gerald ‘s fate has large impact now? Cap space?

  8. I’d like to see us go defense in round 2. I think Udoh, Beau and Deiter can be had in later rounds. Maybe Zack Allen or Dremont in third too.

    We’re looking pretty bad at Safety if Justin Evans is still injured and Nickel packages are run 70% of all defensive snaps so who’s our 3rd CB? Greedy, Rock, Baker, Adderly, Chauncey….seems to be some excellent candidates in round 2!

  11. Licht is painting himself into a corner…we need a RG desperately. The entire OLIne looked like garbage last year and it started and ended with Benenoch.

    We need a #1 corner desperately. We are staring at one of the worst secondarys in the league right now.

    We need a DT desperately because Licht has created a situation where keeping GMC is getting impossible. Are we seriously going to lineup Vea and Allen???

    And Licht’s track record in round 2 is not giving me confidence that he can find a way out of the jam he has made for himself.

    Ughhhhh.

  12. The old cliche of taking best player available, I think becomes more important in a round 2 or 3. So few players in these rounds become anything more than JAG. So if you have a much higher rating on a corner, take the corner. Or if you have the highest rating on the OL guy take him… New Orleans had the huge draft a few years ago by picking Kamara. Not a need for them at that time.

  13. Fans don’t think like this, but picking OL in the second could very well help your defense by keeping it off the field. We need a RT bad. Dotson’s last year was one more then it should’ve been. He’ll certainly be our Grimes this year. I like the idea of Risner. B.A. didn’t sound like he has much confidence in Dotson. Admitting his run blocking sucks, and his pass blocking has slipped. He said it’ll be no secret we won’t run right much. That’s not going to fly B.A.. This is his draft more then Lichts, it’s his team. He was never hot on McCoy I think more then anything because he’s not that hard core take no prisoner leader. He’s looking for alpha dogs like White. If Risner is that alpha dog B.A. will pick him.

  14. Not a fan of using the picks on a CB or RB because Licht hasn’t shown the ability to identify a quality option via the draft at either position. Last year he was obviously higher on MJ Stewart than Carlton Davis which is obviously incorrect. Don’t get me started on the RB position so yea get us a proven pass rusher or pass protector bc like he said LAST YEAR, smart teams build through the trenches. Funny he modeled last offseason after the Jaguars plan of attack, he abandons ship this offseason and then they select Josh Allen lol. Stop doubling and tripling down on these positions though, the people apparently love the players Licht has assembled in the past just claimed it was bad coaching so move on and address other needs. He drafted 2 CBs in the top 2 rounds over the past 3 offseasons, we should be fine. He drafted a RB in the 2nd round last year, we should be fine. Let Jason either swim in success with his past picks and use them as a highlighter to mark more of his errors.

  16. Risner or Taylor please. This is the highest need on offense and possibly overall. If they want to improve this offense and actually have a run game fix this crap right side of line. Dotson can’t run block and is 34. Benenoch sucks and is a career backup imo. He’s had time and I don’t think it’s coaching. Even if Dotson plays well we need depth and his replacement now. Not when he stinks or folds.

  17. I like how this draft is falling to us in the 2nd round. Greedy Williams and Gardner-Williams are still on the board and we have an opportunity to get either in the second round. I think Polite might be there in the third round. Stay away from Damien Harris…too many carries in college imo. If we go WR, it’s official that Licht is absolutely unfit to be GM. This pick needs to be OL, DL or secondary. Period.

  20. There are some really good players in round 2. I was surprised to see some players that were picked in round 1 as well as some that fell to round 2. Bucs pick at 39 or 7th next round. Some really good players fell to round 2. The Bucs could go either way and get a excellent player. After missing on OG Chris Winstrom, wouldn’t OT/OG Cody Ford fix our RG problem? OTs Risner and Taylor are 1st round material. The top of the 2nd round is loaded with top safeties. I don’t know what to do. It’s blind dog in a meathouse time. lol. Bottom Line, we’re gonna get another starter. Go Bucs! Drafttek keeps actual and projected picks by round.

  21. @macabee – Drafteck has had us picking a safety and RB in rounds 2, 3 for a while. I think they’re smoking something over there. I keep getting thumbs down for saying we need to focus on trenches, but that’s what we need. Risner is strong, tough, Cody Ford is just mean and nasty and can play OT or RG. And I wouldn’t have any complaints taking Zach Allen for pass rush help.

    Games are won in the trenches!

    I don’t know who is down voting you. But you are 100% correct that the Bucs need to add more talented players to the right side of the OL.

    As much as I like Liedtke, and have hopes for Cappa the Bucs still need more competition. More importantly OL players with more power and pop on the right side.

    Risner is my favorite but Ford would be nice. And Taylor is worth a look if the Bucs still think highly of him as well.

I would’t pick a safety there, given all the goodies that fell to round 2. But I will tell you that the Bucs invited 5 safeties to One Buc – Savage and Abram are gone and Adderly, Gardner-Johnson, and Deionte Thompson remain. Who knows what lurks in the minds of men. Jon Gruden comes to mind. lol.

  25. Jason Licht said they never waivered on the pick. He said it was always going to be Devin White if he was available, regardless of which pass rushers were available. I believe him.

    So if they knew they would be taking a LB in the 1st, I wonder what the Bucs plan is positionally in round 2 and 3. If they want to change the culture, they’re gonna need more new players on defense.

    Jaylon Ferguson was SR’s guess in his final mock. Ive been watching his highlights. Dude is a great edge rusher. 45 sacks in college. That is productive. He has some fire too.

    I think the Bucs will have their shot at one of the following if they don’t trade back…CB Greedy Williams, DE/OLB Jaylon Ferguson, or DE/DT Zach Allen.

  28. I wish we could have traded down but White will be a favorite player here for his entire career and we have the vocal leader everyone has been begging for. As much as he wasn’t my pick I think he is going to prove invaluable and the “overpaying” garbage will fade to nothing after we see what he does for our Defense and he will be a Major upgrade over Keon in just about every way. Kwon disappeared on the field for me and I have a feeling you will see White everywhere on the field like you used to see Brooks and Nickerson…

    I know there is going to be steals at CB and S when we pick today but if Risner is there for us I sincerely hope we don’t pass him up. Taylor apparently has major Medical seed Flags so he would be the last ditch option. Oline is the one big need on Offense and if we can grab one of the solid OTs that have fallen then we can go Defense the rest of the Draft and there will be some solid Workhorses on the Dline and Secondary available in the 3rd 4th and 5th rounds…

    They know to succeed they need Matt Ryan standing up and healthy to win and he can only do that if he has a good running game and a clean pocket.

Need to go D-Line in the 3rd – would prefer either Jones out of tOSU or Allen out of BC. Not sure about Ferguson since we have been hit or miss with small school selections.

    Time to go join the Dummynick selling whole and term life insurance.

  40. Here is what Nate Davis wrote – I hope this is not what happens:

    Buccaneers — Drew Lock, QB, Missouri: Well, looky here. Lock has lots of starting experience, a crackling right arm and just enough swagger. Sounds like Bruce Arians’ kind of guy. And at this price, Lock could be a welcome insurance policy if the Jameis Winston experiment — remember, this is the last year the inconsistent 2015 No. 1 pick is under contract — finally goes up in smoke.

  41. Our 2nd pick needs to go to corner, Dean or Williams look like great fits. The challenge there is CB’s are rarely impact players in their first year so I can see why others might look to another position. However with what we have now does that really matter?

  43. My big board for round 2:
    1. Cody Ford
    2. Dalton Risner
    3. Greedy Williams
    4. Chase Winovich

    If top 3 are gone, trade down and grab Winovich. He is underrated! Next 3 picks for Bucs have to be OL/DL/CB in no particular order. I know many are saying we still need S and RB, but we have enough guys in those positions, they just need to be coached up more. TRENCHES!!!

  44. Well at least we didn’t take another Clemson DE. However, I think we have drafted every LSU LB that was available the last few years. However, the last coach said the best ability is availability and none of those lB were ever available. Even Kwon (whiff) Alexander miss too many games. I hope this kid can stay on the field.
    I think it will be Adderley in the 2nd as we have someone who coached him. We know what we are getting.
    Zach Allen would really help or another pass rusher. I’m not worried about OL as I think coaching was the issue. We can get the huge OT later in the draft.
